that is a major game changer. the third major trend is china, the china story is getting bigger and bigger and bigger. not only that, the money is coming out of china rather than investing in u.s. treasury, it's chasing for the acquisitions of sf and equity stakes and various companies to earn higher returns and also gain larger market share. now, the fourth trend, of course, is the huge asian plus china kind of trade block. it's one of the largest in the world by population size. but it's also growing much faster compared with other markets. so all these four different trends trarns late for positive earning he in the region. >> where are the map opportunities, then, if you're looking from an investment angle? where would you see the sectors you get most of this transaction? >> right. right. so you would look at the region. what's happening is the rise of the middle class. in china, of course, at the country is changing from an export dependent economy to an economy of more balance towards internal consumption, i.e., underpinned by the rising middle class. and the same story you were sayi

korea is pretty much sanctioned out at this point. unless china decides to cut off oil supplies and other goods to north korea, it appear there's no stopping the north korean regime at this point. >> what's china's response? immediate neighbors to the west. a blast -- if i were china, i'd be a hell of a lot more concerned about them setting off nuclear devices than in the united states. look at the map, they're literally in the shadow of china? any response from china or belief inside the pentagon or this administration china will eventually step up and start exerting more pressure on the north koreans to become a more responsible state? >> one of the biggest fears in that region is it will spark some kind of regional nuclear arms race. both south korea and japan in the past have threatened to start developing their own nuclear weapons. no signs they're doing that yet. we go back to china. the only thing that might make this a little bit different is china leaned heavily on north korea not to conduct this test. for north korea to do this is like in your face beijing. there may b
